It seems like a lot has been happening which is causing change in my life. Nothing major, not
major tragedies or calamities that would rock our world. And I'm not claiming that my issues and changes are nearly as important or as things happening in other parts of the world, like Japan. I have no illusions to the fact that my little changes don't even compare to the changes happening with people affected by the earthquake and tsunami, however I thought I would share some things happening in my (our) lives.
So, Mary and I have been talking a lot about what our goals are and where we want to go with our lives, what do want our lives to mean. What legacy do we want to leave, what do want our girls to say about us? Here are some things that we want to be known for:
1. We care about what Jesus Cares about
2. We place other's interests above our own
3. We don't hold back based on what other people might think
4. We let Love reign
These things sprung a discussion about the things we have been involved with recently and we decided that rather than being task oriented, we need to be Christ oriented and worry about what He worries about.
So, we are making some changes, we are changing some leadership roles we hold and we are taking more time to spend together, just the two of us AND just the four of us. We need to concentrate more about what we want to be known for and who we want to spend time loving.
Have you assessed your life recently? What do you want to be known for? Who do you want people to say you are?
